About Tricore

In the right hands, signs of illness can point to a cure.

The greatest minds in medicine are only as good as the information they have access to. The laboratory produces a rich pool of information and insight that provides clarity and drives healthcare decisions for individuals and populations.

TriCore was founded in 1998 as an independent, not-for-profit, clinical laboratory, sponsored through a unique collaboration between Presbyterian Healthcare Services and the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center.

Our core competency is lab. From sample collection and analysis, to result reporting, to managing labs, to training the next generation of healthcare professionals, we have a relentless drive to improve processes, eliminate errors, and empower our partners to lead others to better healthcare through accurate diagnoses. Our network of specialized laboratories provides accurate and timely results, allowing clinicians to more easily care for their patients.
